  • 1 lemongrass stalk, bruised
  • 2 t fish sauce
  • 15 g coriander
  • 5 g fresh mint
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 green chilli, seeded and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced

Cooking Instructions

Place all the ingredients except the fish in a blender and blend until combined.

Place the blended mixture and the fish into a shallow pan and slowly bring to a simmer over a low heat. Poach the fish for 10–15 minutes, spooning the broth over the fish until the fish flakes apart easily and is cooked through.

Serve the fish warm with a generous ladle of poaching broth.

    Hello Paulina!

    It wasn’t included in phase 1 of our relaunch, but it will be back (and better) in phase 2 (coming soon).

    We can’t give an exact date, but it won’t be much longer. Keep an eye out! :)

    Happy cooking!
